Empty Bowls

November 28, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

2013-11-29 11.49.58

On the Friday after Thanksgiving, The Idaho Foodbank hosts Empty Bowls in downtown Boise on the Grove Plaza

Throughout the year we collect handcrafted and hand-painted bowls from professional and amateur artisans, students, and studios. The event offers the opportunity to select a unique bowl from thousands and then enjoy a hot bowl of soup generously donated by one of several of our finest local restaurants. While you enjoy your meal, we encourage you to remember that not all our Idaho neighbors are able to meet the basic need of feeding their families. The funds raised by this event helps to provide free food assistance to those badly in need this winter.

This year’s event will be bigger and better!

We anticipate having close to 3,000 bowls this year so  we are adding more tables to display bowls and more cashiers, so there will be less time spent waiting in line!

If you are interested in painting bowls for Empty Bowls please visit our partners Ceramica and Piggy Pigs Pottery for more information:
